Huacachina Sandboarding

As a break from the usual gray skies of Lima, a group of us headed out to Ica, Peru and Huacachina to get sun for a few days and to do some boarding but this time on sand and not on snow.  The main center of the tourist driven location of Huacachina is this desert oasis

Honestly, I think if the others hadn't needed to get back to Lima I might have stayed out there.

The riding on sand was a little bit tricky and the boards werent exactly made by Burton so the wax would get you about 30 feet or so before it started to stick but it was still a good ride.
